Country's Craig Morgan finds balance in new album
By Vernell Hackett
NASHVILLE, Tenn (Reuters) - When Craig Morgan found out that actress Angie Harmon of "Rizzoli & Isles" was a fan of his music, he asked if she would like to be a co-star in his video for "This Ole Boy." To his delight, she agreed.
"I remember her being hot when she was on 'Law & Order,'" the singer says, laughing as he talked to Reuters about the new album and video.
He went on to explain how the two connected.
"We had this mutual friend and they were talking about country music and she said she loved my music. She told him to tell me if I ever needed somebody in a video she'd love to do it. So when we were getting ready to shoot the video for 'This Ole Boy,' I called her.
"We've become friends. She and (husband) Jason (Sehorn) are wonderful people. We share a lot of the same interests, morals and values."
The two have already talked about having Morgan do a guest stint on her detective show on TNT, "Rizzoli & Isles."
Going in front of a camera for a role other than singing would not be foreign for Morgan, 47, who portrayed himself on an episode earlier this year of Lifetime's "Army Wives."
He also hosts Outdoor Channel's "Craig Morgan All Access Outdoors," which is in its second season. The show is a behind-the-scenes look at his life of music, riding, dirt bike racing and hunting as he celebrates his love for the great outdoors across the United States. Continued...
